We collect over 50,000 kg of organic waste each week

Auckland’s leading compostable waste collection service

We provide a food waste collection service for businesses and homes that are not able to compost their food scraps themselves.

Why compost?

When organic waste breaks down in landfills, methane gas is produced. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and contributes significantly to climate change.
By composting organic waste, we turn it into a valuable resource used to enrich the soil. Healthy soils hold carbon in a living form and play an essential role in our local food production.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WASTE

First, we collect your compostable waste and then we take it to a large-scale compost facility in Tuakau. Here, the compostable waste is mixed with about 10 times as much green waste, mulched together, and then laid out into long piles called 'air-assisted windrows'. The organic waste is blasted with hot air (around 75 degrees), which breaks the waste down over about 9 weeks! After maturing, the fresh compost is then distributed to farms in the Pukekohe and Bombay areas.

Commercial collections

WHEELIE BIN SIZES - 80L, 120L & 240L

Suitable for hospitality businesses and offices. To keep the bins nice and clean, we provide a compostable bin liner that we replace at every empty. Collections are scheduled to suit your requirements.

BIN SIZE - 660L & 1100L

Suitable for large offices and businesses. These bins are ideal for paper hand towel collections and large volumes of compostable packaging. These large bins can't be used with bin liners; therefore, the waste must be bagged in compostable bags or just loose paper towels or packaging. Not suitable for heavy food waste only sites.
